the republicans and chairman paul ryan once again put forth a budget that hurts women. there's no morality in a budget that takes food from the mouths of struggling women and children while slashing taxes for millionaires and billionaires. these attacks on breast cancer research, on child care, on the affordable care act for families, on maternal health and on education are not what we owe our mothers, our sisters and our daughters. make no mistake, women, especially poor women, will shoulder the burdens of these cuts. at a time when so many americans are struggling just to make ended meet, we must do more -- ends meet, we must do more, not less, to provide a strong safety net for all americans. i call on my colleagues to support a budget that provides compassion of the government, to help american women in need and invest in the future that they deserve. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman

a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i
. chu: $2,000, $2,000 is what you will lose if the republican paul ryan budget goes through. what does $2,000 mean to you? for a single mom, it could mean the difference between feeding her family or seeing her kids go hungry. for hardworking americans, it could mean the car payment or gas money or prescription drug money that you need to pay each and every month. but to the g.o.p. $2,000 is the amount they are taxing middle-class families in their quote-unquote new budget, the paul ryan bument. but not everybody has -- paul ryan budget. but not everybody has to pay more. the truth is in this budget if you're oil corporation corporation or taking jobs overseas or a yacht owner, you have nothing to fear with the g.o.p. budget. your lifestyle is totally secure. once again, working families will pay more so the rich can pay less. for the sake of middle-class americans, we must oppose the ryan budget. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from ohio seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objec
coverage on c-span. earlier today, house budget committee paul ryan spoke. here's what he said. [cheers and applause] ♪ >> hey, good morning. good morning, everybody. good to see you. just ♪ hey, folks. hello. thanks, everybody. [cheers and applause] >> appreciated. hey michelle, how are you doing? how about it for janesville, wisconsin. i appreciate it. that's great. we all need a break from the mess in washington and i just got to say, it is nice to be in her room full of conservatives for a change. [cheers and applause] thank you. it's time she takes up to catch up with friends and a plan for the future. so i'm grateful for the chance to speak with you and thanks for this opportunity. this has been a really big week. we got white smoke from the vatican and a budget from the senate. [cheers and applause] the senate call their budget a foundation for growth, restoring the promise of american opportunity. well, i feel like saluting already. but when you read it, you find the vatican has not the only place blowing smoke this week. [laughter] you see the democrats call their budget a
by budget chairman paul ryan. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 3, 2013, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate. the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip each, to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today to call for continued reforms to our health care system. the affordable care act was a huge step in the right direction, but we can do more, because the path we're on is unsustainable. the u.s. spends approximately 18% of its g.d.p. on health, close to twice as much as other developed nations and yet we don't have better health care outcomes. health care costs are rising faster than inflation and wages, meaning they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the
committee chair, paul ryan, laid out his budget plan. sadly, it's just more of the same. like a bad record, this year's republican proposal is virtually the same document as the one he proposed last spring. it harms the middle class. it harms low-income americans, and it is especially bad for women and families. now, they have framed this budget and called it a prosperity one, a prosperity plan. but this budget should be called the road to austerity, because it is a plan that is most noteworthy for the rather harsh austerity it demands of the many and the lavish benefit it extends to the few. it clearly envisions a rising tide of selective tax cuts that would lift all yachts, but leave many dinghies behind. our republican friends like to talk about making the hard choices, but what they propose here would make it much harder for millions of americans and also make things much easier for a fortunate few. that's their plan. now, specifically under this plan, he has this new goal of balancing the budget in 10 years. and to accomplish this, he slashes funding safety net programs that, for seni
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
by chairman paul ryan in the budget committee will increase economic growth and job creation, cut wasteful government spending and strengthen our entitle am programs -- entitlement programs. and for first time in recent memory, the house's budget will balance in 10 years. before i yield back, i'd like to acknowledge the launch of the house's historians' new website, the house and selma, bridging history and memories. this important historical record is now available for the public to explore at history.house.gov. it will soon include oral testimonies from members of congress like john lewis, describing their role and contributions to the civil rights movement. i was proud to join congressman john lewis, congresswoman terri sewell, and martha roby, as well as others and the gentleman as well in that trip to selma and montgomery this year, but those particular who were active and involved in the unveiling of this project, i look forward to its growth in the years to come. i thank the gentleman from maryland and yield back. mr. hoyer: i thank the gentleman for his comments. and i would remark
this was the centerpiece of their campaign for the last six months. this was part of what our friend, paul ryan and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value ov
: without objection. r. lujan: mr. speaker, the house republican budget unveiled yesterday by chairman paul ryan is the repeat of the same tea party principles that have already been rejected by the american people. house republicans are once again determined to place the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle-class families while the wealthiest americans get yet another tax break. after wasting valuable time last congress, voting more than 30 times to repeal health care reform rather than focus on jobs and the economy, the republican budget again calls for its repeal. in addition, their budget ends medicare as we know it, and surprise, surprise, turning it into a voucher program that reduces benefits and leaves seniors paying higher out-of-pocket costs. while this budget blueprint is still lacking in specific details, it is clear that in order to meet the spending targets it outlines, house republicans will slash investments in key areas that are essential to economic growth and job creation, education, job training, science and research will all be on the chopping block in ord
and they are pleased to affirm, and the point is house budget committee chairman paul ryan released a budget proposal that is most -- is the most reckless austerity plan he's ever proposed. instead of a budget that will slow -- instead we get a budget that will slow the economy and kill jobs. we urge you to vote for the progressive caucus' back-to-work budget which will grow the economy, create seven million jobs and ask the wealthy and multinationals to pay their fair share so we can make investments in our people and our future. 105,000 citizen co-sponsors in less than 48 hours. with that, let me introduce co-chair of the prodepressive caucus mitigating circumstance friend the gentleman from minnesota, keith ellison, for two minutes, thank you. the chair: the gentleman from minnesota is recognized -- recognized for two minutes. mr. ellison: thank you, mr. chairman. i would like to just congratulate everybody with the progressive caucus an thank all the staff that did such a good job preparing this excellent budget which gives us an amazing choice as americans, to confront this jobs crisis. i'm so p
